INDIAN RAILWAY


Welcome abode my blog spot. I would like to introduce myself as Atanu Roy, a senior lighting artist in a reputed animation firm in Mumbai.
This is my first model on my blog. It shows a locomotive waiting at a station. The locomotive is a part of a huge network called Indian railways, India's largest government owned autonomous body. Locomotives started running in India from 1852 onwards. Indian Railways was then known as the Great Indian Peninsular Railways. Today, Indian Railways spans the length and breadth of the country, connecting people of all cultures and races, thus enabling the common man to travel, mingle freely with others, see places and also realise his dreams.
Around 9000 trains carrying approximately 15 million passengers pass through 7000 stations everyday. It can be a security agencies nightmare. Employing over 14 lakh employees from all parts of the country, the Indian Railways carries the message of national integration and an united India, a country which is showing a steady growth in its economy with lots of promises in the 21st century. From a loss making company defaulting in paying dividends worth Rs 1823 crore in 2001, Indian Railways has revved up and revamped its strategies. Today it's treasury boasts of a Rs 12,140 crore turnover. An impressive success story, the story of Indian Railways is definitely management case study material. Taking inspiration from the Indian Railways, i wish to create my magic using modeling, texturing and lighting tools and welcome you all to my page. This is my fitting tribute to the great Indian Railways, always benefiting the common man.
